You could also get the rim repaired. www.willsrimrepair.com does good work and doesn't charge anywhere near as much as a new rim will cost you.

I rode like six miles on a full flat and hit a few speed bumps how come you need a rim?

I tell you what, if you have a 08 gold set I would do a strait up trade for my 07 black rims and I will take care of fixing that rim myself. I've been on the hunt for some 08 gold coated for my candy red 07.

PM me if your interested.

As for getting a new rim you should do the usual ebay, criegslist, sell.com hunt.

Thanks for all the help guys!!!! I finally got a new one, n i got the old one back n got it fixed. Perfect condition!!!! it had one little dent on the rim n the place fixed it for $50. The dealer just didnt wanna repair the old one n sold me a new one. So i got an 08 gold rim for the r6 raven if anyone wants to buy it.
